Arthur Evangelical Free Church Awana


Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed

Charter #3838


Awana is an international, nondenominational, Bible-centered youth organization providing weekday clubs and programs for those in the two years prior to kindergarten through high school.  The Evangelical Free Church of Arthur offers clubs through the sixth grade.  The Awana material is available for grades 7 through 12 for those clubbers who wish to continue.

The goal of Awana is to “reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ and train them to serve Him.”  It is important that we understand the Gospel, for Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 that it is the Gospel “by which we are saved.”  Then he tells us what the Gospel is:  “That Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures.”  The Bible tells us that Jesus paid the price for our sins and because we are sinners (Romans 3:23) we cannot save ourselves.  Paul says in Ephesians 2:8-9 that is not by works but by grace through faith that we are saved.  Salvation is a free gift that must be received.

We also believe that knowledge of the Bible will help us grow and be strong; therefore, the Awana program puts a lot of emphasis on the Bible and memorizing Bible truths.  Awana can help share the love of Jesus and His promise of salvation with children, as well as helping to build the foundation of strength in Jesus through the knowledge of the Bible by memorizing verses.  Together, we can help children understand the Gospel, grow in a commitment to Jesus, and become strong to serve God.
